Allman Bros. Celebrating 50 Years

I can't believe that it's the 50th anniversary of the Allman Bros. Band. They were a staple at our college radio station. Here are the details of the celebration by RTT Music News.

The Allman Brothers Band has announced that the upcoming all-star event celebrating 50 years of the band, which is already sold out, will be available on pay-per-view via Nugs.Net.

Surviving members of the Allman Brothers Band, drummer Jaimoe, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones, will be performing at the event, to be held at Madison Square Garden on March 10.

They will be joined by Widespread Panic drummer Duane Trucks and keyboardist Reese Wynams. Former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist Chuck Leavell will join as a special guest.

"NYC has always been a spiritual home for the Allman Brothers," said Trucks. "So it only feels natural to honor Uncle Butch, Gregg, Berry, Duane and all the other brothers and sisters we have lost along the way at MSG. I'm excited to get to play these songs with Jaimoe and the Brothers one last time to celebrate 50 years of this music."

"I can't wait to play again with my Brothers," said Jaimoe.

Haynes said "This is going to be a really special evening. We're all very happy that even those not able to be inside The Garden will be able to share it with us. "

Brad Serling, Founder and CEO, added, "We could not be more thrilled about the opportunity to work with The Brothers on this PPV from MSG. The music that these performers helped to create is so incredibly special. We are very thankful to be able to help share this performance with ABB fans around the planet."

The standard HD video stream of the show runs for $29.99, while the 4K webcast costs $49.99.

The Allman Brothers Band made their debut on March 26, 1969. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers played their final concert on October 28, 2014 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
